Specialty Pharmacies


Specialty pharmacies provide pharmaceutical or biological products that are part of complex care protocols and may include special handling and delivery instructions, patient medication education and continuous monitoring.


Therapies that require specialty pharmacy medication are often costly. CVS/Caremark™ has contracted with specialty pharmacies to provide specialty pharmacy medication and patient education and support. Physicians are encouraged to order specialty prescription drugs by faxing the order to one of the following specialty pharmacies.

CVS Medical Specialty Drug Policies


CVS/Caremark™ and HMSA medical policies rely on the use of evidence-based medicine, which typically comes from peer-reviewed literature. Physicians submitting comments should include citation source material to support their positions. Inclusion of this material will help CVS/Caremark and HMSA's medical directors evaluate the comment or proposed change.
